    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I had an interview with someone in HR who asked the basic HR type questions about why you're looking for a new job etc. I got called in for a face to face.

    I met first with the social media manager and this was one of the worst interviews EVER. He was strictly by the book asking me questions that literally came from a sheet HR gave him and they were those questions that have no real answers like "where do you see yourself in 5 years", "what are your strengths?" I thought this was VERY odd for a position that is supposed to think outside the box. It was AWFUL.

    Then I met with his boss who is VP of global marketing. That interview went fine. It was more casual and we actually talked about social.

    Then I met with someone who is in the marketing group but not social at all. Her role (in fact she told me this) was to gauge how she thought I would fit in with the group.

    I don't do well with the where do you see yourself in 5 years kind of questions and thought that overall, it was a lame thing to do for a social job.
